As much hate as the man gets he's made the league huge profits, which is his job. You'd want a raise too wouldn't you?

For all of the **** Bettman gets, he's been good for the business. Give him his money.

My salary doubled since then too, and I haven't made the huge increases in league profits and marketability that he has. The man has faults, but he's done well in his job. No issue with him getting his duckets.

Stuck with the Sabres after Rigases got indicted and NHL took over operations. Even with having poor attendance, ran the club for a year while the team went through Hamister shenanigans, and then got Golisano involvedd. He knew enough not to give up on hockey in Buffalo. That alone, to me, is priceless.

I think people have to remember he works for the owners, not the fans.

Sure.

How does he do that? What's his day-to-day work?

Another financial note to file under "Why should fans care?"

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. I thought you meant "what did he do?"

He probably does CEO-like things. Meetings with senior level officials to discuss league happenings/finances/sponsors/PR, etc. I'm not sure how involved he is personally with negotiating sponsorships and other contracts (like TV deals) as well as the CBA, but I presume he plays a role in those things as well. Right now I bet he's pretty involved with the Phoenix situation for instance.

It would be interesting to see what his daily schedule looks like.

My only gripe about Bettman are the strikes and the lose of hockey, and the fact that he takes pride in that abomination of a process. GOOD leaders get that stuff resolved BEFORE the worst case scenario. That's like going to war and then feeling OKAY about it. No, it's not okay. None of it was or will ever be ok.
